Every experiment begins with the hypothesis, which is an educated guess and informed speculation. Without the fantasy, scientific minds and practical problem-solvers would find it hard to make progress. Myth draws on reality and then influences how it develops. The relationship between them may be ...

We can't tackle metaphysics,Rom. We can either rationalize it or go mad. Seems to me. Even arguing that metaphysics is something inexplicable is a sort of rationalization. Generally I dont disagree with what you are saying but I also believe that to truly separate the wheat from the chaff one has to...

We all live by a myth. Myth is not there to make us understand. Mythology takes something irrational like life, the universe, existence and transforms it into something rational. Which is exactly what the scientific myth tries to do right now. In science meta-physics is physics. The unknown will be ...

They are all true if you interpret them metaphorically. Literally not so true. It makes me wonder sometimes how much of the stuff science "discovers" touch the metaphysical realm and how much is actually factual.

These songs are nice but Bob Dylan certainly seemed to enjoy the money this song made. I dont judge him because he made money but the current neurosis of our societies is hypocrisy. Its nice to talk but do you walk the walk when things get hard? Carmela, what a I learned from the current events in G...

Ron what I meant by the image doesnt matter was that even this free will argument is not an argument told from a scientific point of view only. It has been told in many different forms. The bible deals with the same conflict also. Angels that feel they have no choice. Fallen angels that want to have...

Thank you for the advice D thats really nice of you. I am really struggling with metaphor and its nature of potentially being misunderstood. But mainly all my efforts focus into finding a way to mythologize this technological world we live in and its relationship to our psychology. Anyways, thanks a...

I was talking about something different. I adopt some points from existentialism and from other philosophies that make sense.

I am not sure I get it Ron. What happiness has to do with our image of the cosmos or the transcendent mystery.

Considering I am from Greece, doing good, I guess, lol. Struggling with survival, trying to follow my dreams which is directing and writing, for the cinema though. Can't seem to formulate a coherent myth still (my thoughts are too chaotic lol) but I'll get it hopefully.

Yeah not to bad.
